Firstly, almost all the staff were very nice and courteous. While the room and bathroom were nice, well decorated, and CLEAN ~ they were SMALL, as were the 2 beds in the room. There are cafes and such around the hotel but it didn't feel like a city centre. One great thing is that the subway is 10 minutes from the hotel and a weekly pass costs just 14 euros (about $26 Canadian or so). Just three stops away is Monastiraki which I spent a lot of time at wandering around, shopping, eating, and walking up the hill to the Acropolis and Parthenon. They need to tell the maids not to barge into the room in the morning ~ afterall ~ the bars are open till 6 or 7 am! The maid scared the crap out of my friend when I was gone. I would stay here again but I would certainly ask for a bigger room. Safe hotel with a great huge lobby with a bar.
